    Volkswagen India has introduced a 1-litre, three cylinder MPI engine with the Polo hatchback in the country. However, the automaker has discontinued the existing 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine in the hatchback from now onwards. According to the manufacturer, the new 1.0 litre engine is more fuel efficient according to the ARAI test results. Also, the new engine is lighter by about 18 kilograms and is understood to be BS-VI emission norms-ready. However, according to VW, the 1.0 MPI motor will replace the 1.2 MPI across the product range, suggesting it will be offered on the Ameo compact sedan shortly as well.

    Commenting on the new engine on the Polo lineup, Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said, "Delivering on our promise of continued product introduction and innovation, we are pleased to introduce the Polo in an all-new 1.0 L MPI engine. We are known for our performance and unmatched safety and with this new introduction; we further enhance our brand proposition, providing a diverse portfolio to India's distinctive car-buyer, with multiple engine options that best suits their requirements."
